State Sen. Jim Tomes Welcomes Local Students As Legislative Pages

STATEHOUSE (Jan. 27, 2011) - State Sen. Jim Tomes (R-Wadesville) recently welcomed the following area students as legislative pages:

  • Virginia Deig, a daughter Evansville resident Cynthia Deig and student at Evansville Lutheran School;
  • Amanda Herrmann, a daughter of Evansville residents Mike and Jane Herrmann and student at Corpus Christi Catholic School;
  • Megan Pritchett, a daughter of Evansville residents Raymond and Nancy Pritchett and student at Corpus Christi Catholic School; and
  • Eva Traylor, a daughter of Evansville residents Brad and Susie Traylor and student at Corpus Christi Catholic School.

During the legislative session, pages spend one day at the Statehouse working with their senator and Senate staff.

Tomes said student pages start the day in orientation before touring the historic Statehouse. Throughout the day, pages spend time in the Senate Chamber observing the introduction of bills, listening to debates and delivering important messages among senators and staff.

Students in grades six through 12 are invited to serve as pages on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout session, Tomes said.

Although many slots are filled for the remainder of the 2011 session, Tomes said those interested in additional information for this year's session may call 1-800-382-9467.
